Reviews

Praise for Terry Pratchett

"One of the world's most delightful writers."
--Cory Doctorow, Boing Boing

"Some writers simply possess the Gift. No matter what they bring out . . . it's sure to be compulsively readable. That's certainly the case with Terry Pratchett."
--Michael Dirda, The Washington Post Book World

"The great Terry Pratchett, whose wit is metaphysical, who creates an energetic and lively secondary world, who has a multifarious genius for strong parody . . . who deals with death with startling originality. He writes amazing sentences."
--A. S. Byatt, The New York Times

"Clever . . . insightful. . . . [Pratchett's] wry wit is as good as gold."
--Lylah M. Alphonse, The Boston Globe

"One of the most consistently funny writers around; a master of the stealth simile, the time-delay pun, and the deflationary three-part list."
--Ben Aaronovitch, The Guardian (London)

"What Pratchett does is not just great, but unparalleled. In five hundred years, it won't be the Nobel laureates who are being studied. It's going to be this guy."
--Brandon Sanderson, Tor.com
